It’s been a week since that episode #MMKDakilangFan was aired but people still talk about it. It involved one of the resident writers, France S. Elgort, of ABS-CBN when he was still a fan of one of contenders for the network’s talent search. For the sake of respecting the privacy of certain individuals, names have been changed.
Does it matter who the parties are apart from the writer himself? Maybe if it would mean getting some careers revived along the way. But that’s when the focus starts shifting away from the fan himself since this is his episode and he has a story that he found worth sharing.
Why am I affected? The line “Fan ka lang!” got my goad. I have been a fan for as long as I could remember that I don’t remember meeting a celebrity in person and getting told of that. On the other hand, I never been close to someone as much as Francis was to the celebrity contended that he’s infatuated with. Every fan that has reached such levels of closeness can relate especially in the part where a fan could forget his studies and his family just by following some celebrity around. Social media wasn’t at its height yet when this happened so you can see how much of the “following” is in person, not online.
